Check the weather forecast. I know we’re due more snow the end of the week which means Banff will probably be getting some. But I don’t pay attention to that side of the mountains :ROFLMAO:

It shouldn’t be that bad. Highways will be plowed if it does snow and it’s too early for avalanche closures.

And depending where you’re going to in Alberta, if you’re in the central area south of Red Deer feel free to drop in for coffee. My road isn’t the greatest right now but you shouldn’t get stuck :bag:

There's a lot of grain to cut......?
....kept heading east on the 27, hit Saskatchewan at around noon ( just to say we had been) Leibenthal,back to the41 Medicine Hat and now in Taber.
Yeah there’s a lot that still needs done. I’m east on 27 near the town you’d have driven through called Torrington. I did an unstatistical survey the other day that in four miles of highway, only 2 fields were done which equaled about 14%. A lot of it is flat and rough looking from the snow. Hopefully they’ll get back into the fields end of next week.

I’ve never been to Taber! Medicine Hat is a pretty place though. You’re definitely getting around.
 
Challenging day today.
We got just about every kind of weather conceivable. Between Merritt and Hope was " interesting". The road got down to single track, we followed a couple of hgv's and managed to keep moving. The speed limit boards kept telling us that 120 was ok, but 50 to 60 was too fast in my opinion.
Anyway, what is it with speed limits here, the locals seem to think they are optional?!!
Sitting in the sunshine now in Abbotsford. Gonna try the island tomorrow, hopefully

Oh you bailed on the snow :ROFLMAO:

The general rule of thumb is you can do 10 km over the speed limit without getting a ticket. Anything over that and you’re risking it.

That being said, there’s the posted limit and then there's driving to the conditions. Many people don’t get that distinction. As shown by all the accidents everywhere today.
 
I was out there many years ago, doing the obligatory hippy thing back in the day, but a trip to Vancouver Island would be in order, especially the Butchert Gardens in Victoria. The wife of a quarry owner renovated his abandoned quarry, stunning! A day trip up to the Okanagon Valley would be nice, a lot of farms there too. If you have time, for sure get over to Banff and up through the Rockie Mountains, be wary though, Banff itself is a nice place but it's a tourist trap. Lots of things to see going up from Banff toward the other end at Jasper. The Fraser canyon as well would provide some spectacular scenery.

Mate, think you'd be struggling to do the Okanagan Valley in a day, needs more like a week!!! :banghead:Myra Canyon Trestle's well worth a look too. Vancouver Island , never miss Tofino or Ucluelet ,eh;)
